Giveaway: The Truman Show on hi-def
The movie that first showed audiences Jim Carrey could be more than a funnyman is coming out in a terrific 4K/Blu-ray combo -- and it can be yours!
“The Truman Show” was one of those movies that comes along at a certain time that meets the moment in multiple ways. It was the picture that showed audiences Jim Carrey could be more than a fart-loving funnyman. In 1998 it arrived at a critical juncture in the information age, just as the internet was blowing up and people were growing fearful about the encroaching power of technology over their lives.
It was directed by the great Peter Weir, one of my favorite filmmakers, and went on to be seen as a watershed film with many imitators, whether consciously or not. In a lot of ways, it presaged many of the same themes of “The Matrix,” which would come out the following year.
